William Rast Clothing

Another pop-star taking his talent into the fashion industry is Justin Timberlake. He has recently released his clothing line William Rast, a combined effort with his good friend Trace Ayala and Johan & Marcella Lindeberg of J. Lindeberg fame.

The Autumn/Winter 2009-10 collection was on show at New York Fashion Week and is now beginning to pop up in stores around the UK in Harvey Nichols and Selfridges. The team didn’t do anything outrageous for the catwalk show, instead everything was very wearable (not boring, wearable) and was described as “the wardrobe of a stylish Southern boy and girl who were plucked out of Tennessee and plopped into the gritty streets of the city.”

After checking out the website: generally I like it, the women’s collection has some nice jackets, none of which I could justify spending that amount of money on though (I wasn’t expecting anything different) and I like the men’s shirts and t-shirts.

What do you reckon? Does JT have a fruitful fashion career ahead of him?
